Folders in the web space and and permissions

Each web space contains the following default folders:

  • html: This is the folder where the website for the domain name points to. Inside this folder, you should place your main page as well as any other HTML files, scripts and images that make up your website.
  • html\public: This folder has read/write permissions for your scripts (e.g. FileSystemObject, AspSmartUpload, ...).
  • private: This folder is for advanced users. Scripts running on your site have access to this folder but the folder is not directly accessible from the web. You should place in this folder any Access databases (*.mdb) your site uses.
    If you are using Password Protection for your website, this folder is a good place to put your password text file.
  • logs: Every time someone visits your website, the system (IIS) updates the current log file. Your log files are stored in this folder and you can download them and delete them as you wish.

It is possible to setup folder permissions throu the webspace control panel, click on "File Management" button and choose from the combobox one of the following permissions:
- Read/Execute

How to point the domains registered with other providers to 7Host servers

If you do not want to transfer the domain to us, you can point it as follow:

  1. Subscribe one of the available plans specifying the domain you want to use
  2. Contact your domain registrar asking to change the information of name servers (DNS) in:    IP:    IP:
I already own a domain. Can I signup for a Hosting plan?

You have 2 options available:

  1. Subscribe a hosting plan without domain transfer to 7Host.
    In this case, as the domain registration is not included in the cost of the account, you have to update the Name Servers (DNS) of your domain with the following values (usually the registrar has a web interface from which you can manage domain information):
       IP: 207234158208
    In this way, you will be able to point your domain to our server.
  2. Subscribe a hosting plan adding the domain transfer. In this case, the renewal of your domain is included in the cost and the transfer of the domain will be carried out by 7Host.
